The 3GPP has recently published the first version of the Release 14 standard that includes support for V2V communications using LTE sidelink communications (referred to as LTE-V, LTE-V2X, LTE-V2V or Cellular V2X). The standard includes a mode (mode 4) where vehicles autonomously select and manage the radio resources without any cellular infrastructure support. This is highly relevant since V2V safety applications cannot depend on the availability of infrastructure-based cellular coverage, and transforms LTE-V into a possible (or complimentary) alternative to 802.11p. The performance of LTE-V in mode 4 is highly dependent on its distributed scheduling protocol (sensing-based Semi-Persistent Scheduling) that is used by vehicles to reserve resources for their transmissions. This paper presents the first evaluation of the performance and operation of this protocol under realistic traffic conditions in urban scenarios. The evaluation demonstrates that further enhancements should be investigated to reduce packet collisions.

Diverse applications in vehicular network present specific requirements and challenges on wireless access technology. Although considered as the first standard, IEEE 802.11p shows the obvious drawbacks and is still in the field-trial stage. In this paper, we propose long-term evolution (LTE)-V as a systematic and integrated V2X solution based on time-division LTE (TD-LTE) 4G. LTE-V includes two modes: 1) LTE-V-direct and 2) LTE-V-cell. Comparing to IEEE 802.11p, LTE-V-direct is a new decentraliz...

A wide variety of applications for road safety and traffic efficiency are intended to answer the urgent call for smarter, greener, and safer mobility. Although IEEE 802.11p is considered the de facto standard for on-the-road communications, stakeholders have recently started to investigate the usability of LTE to support vehicular applications. In this article, related work and running standardization activities are scanned and critically discussed; strengths and weaknesses of LTE as an enabling...

C-V2X (Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything) standard introduced in 3GPP Release-14 is emerging as a potential technology for Cooperative Awareness Message (CAMs) dissemination among connected vehicles. But to attain its full potential, optimal resource scheduling and interference management must be enforced. To address this issue, we propose a weighted exponential averaging based Context-Aware Resource Reselection scheme (CARRs), enabling the periodic exchange of CAMs in a vehicular network. The prop...

Real-time status update in future vehicular networks is vital to enable control-level cooperative autonomous driving. Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X), as one of the most promising vehicular wireless technologies, adopts a Semi-Persistent Scheduling (SPS) based Medium-Access-Control (MAC) layer protocol for its sidelink communications. Despite the recent and ongoing efforts to optimize SPS, very few work has considered the status update performance of SPS. In this paper, Age of Information...

Reliable and scalable wireless transmissions for Internet of Vehicles (IoV) are technically challenging. Each vehicle, from driver-assisted to automated one, will generate a flood of information, up to thousands of times of that by a person. Vehicle density may change drastically over time and location. Emergency messages and real-time cooperative control messages have stringent delay constraints while infotainment applications may tolerate a certain degree of latency. On a congested road, thous...
In Release 14, 3GPP introduced a novel paradigm known as cellular vehicle--to--everything (C-V2X) \emph{mode-4} to specifically support vehicular communications in scenarios without network coverage. Such a scheme has been devised to operate distributedly harnessing a sensing mechanism whereby vehicles can monitor the received power across subchannels. Based on the measured power intensities, vehicles autonomously select a suitable subchannel over which safety messages are broadcasted. The selec...

Vehicular communications, known under the name of V2X (Vehicle to Everything) are expected to grow fast in the next years, bringing for example safer driving conditions, optimized traffic management, energy reduction, etc.. Currently two short range-based technologies (ITS-G5, standardized in Europe by ETSI and derived from WiFi communications IEEE standards and LTE based Vehicle to Everything or LTE-V2X developed by 3GPP and derived from LTE) consider the use of 5.9 GHz ITS band for their deplo...

Autonomous vehicles, on the ground and in the air, are the next big evolution in human mobility. While autonomous driving in highway scenarios is already possible using only the vehicles sensors, the complex scenarios of big cities with all its different traffic participants is still a vision. Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) communication is a necessary enabler of this vision and and an emerging field of interest in today's research. However, to the best of our knowledge open source simul...

In this work the authors present the first publicly available, open-source simulation model of the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Release 14 Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) standard. The model specifically addresses Mode 4, in which vehicles communicate directly in peer to peer mode using a distributed resource allocation algorithm. Importantly, the model is fully compliant with existing service and application layers already defined by the automotive and standards communitie...

In this paper, the decentralized resource selection for Cellular Vehicle to Everything (C-V2X) communication is investigated. The immunity against packet collisions and selection of resource allocation are examined. It is found that the improvement of collision ratio and packet reception ratio (PRR) with the estimation and reservation of resource allocation, is the best way to improve the message broadcasting reliability. However, Sensing-based Semi-Persistent Scheduling (S-SPS), has been propos...

Cellular Vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) communication is a major V2X solution proposed and developed by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Our previous work has studied scalability aspects of C-V2X and demonstrated its potential for accommodating large numbers of vehicles in dense vehicular scenarios. However, existing studies in the scientific literature mostly have a network-level approach to the problem and do not assess the temporal and spatial dynamics of C-V2X networks in heavy ...
